senior lives in a unit that is registered in her son's name and hands

|Telling absentee owners to sign their name to their blank

|The superintendent's unit is
owned by the corporation and the
corporation is represented by the board so the board gives itself a

|If the management company and
the board are afraid of losing their
positions at a requisition meeting, they could schedule the owners

special assessment cheques
so certain owners are over 30 days in arrears. Therefore they lost
their right to vote.
